Kunisaki Peninsula Minemichi Long Trail

By Weekender Editor

Part of a recognized World Agricultural Heritage area, the Kunisaki Peninsula’s Long Trail follows the paths used in the past by Japanese mountain monks. But while they walked it to achieve enlightenment through ascetic practices, you can use the 137km-long trail for relaxing strolls or hiking excursions that’ll bring you closer to the heart of nature or Japan’s ancient history. Rokugo Manzan culture is characterized by the creation of stone Buddhist statues, and you will see many of them along the way.
